Featuring installations, photographs, videos, and paintings, reconstructed historical interiors, modern design objects, experimental and legendary pieces of furniture, this book is an historical survey of 250 years of domestic history.



The fascinating interaction between interior painting and interior design ranging from Romanticism to design concepts for the home of the future is explored in this comprehensive publication. Interieur/Exterieur charts individual chapters in the history of a constant convergence of art and design that ultimately led to a reciprocal permeation: while artists are producing objects and environments, designers are avowing themselves of artistic methods.
This publiaction features paintings, sculptures, installations, reconstructions of interiors, furniture, photographs, and videos as well as digital animations by seventy-eight renowned artists, designers, and architects, such as Caspar David Friedrich, Henry van de Velde, Edvard Munch, Henri Matisse, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Zaha Hadid, and Ronan, in addition to Erwan Bouroullec, Tobias Rehberger, and Andrea Zittel. This publication thus unites two aspects of modernity in the discourse on living and life in an exceedingly rich compendium: the interior as an inner view and the setting for artistic reflection as well as the interior in living concepts between art and design in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
